This photography exhibition marks the sixtieth anniversary of the 1953 Coronation with some behind-the-scenes images that show how the Abbey was prepared for the 1953 coronation, as shot by the likes of photojournalists such as Bert Hardy and John Chillingworth for the Picture Post and other publications. Included are images detailing the extensive building work done to re-configure the abbey in a six-month Ministry of Works project that was just one part of the build-up to the event.
